    A big vertical screen, like the one in the Dodge Charger pursuit cars? It looks as though that’s one of the new additions to the 2019 Ram 1500, based on the work of spy photographer Brian Williams of SpiedBilde.

    [​IMG]

    Although it could be two smaller screens, cleverly styled to look like one, the effect would be similar. In addition to providing more real estate for on-screen controls, this layout would make it easier to provide a 360° camera setup — an increasingly common feature in modern cars, which can be a boon to parking or to paranoid car-sitters.

    [​IMG]

    The photos also reveal the return of “the Knob,” a controversial shifter engineered to feel like a mechanical linkage. Used to shift gears, the knob was inspired by similar shifters in commercial trucks. This one has been redesigned somewhat. It’s possible some trucks will have knob shifters and others will have column shifters.

    Those who hate on-screen controls, or want a backup just in case, may be happy to see that, lined up on either side of the big screen, are physical buttons to control the climate. There is also a line of cleverly styled buttons at the bottom of the center stack.

    [​IMG]

    The key fob has a control for the electrically lowering tailgate — a solution looking for a problem, perhaps.

    The next Ram 1500 should be an interesting truck; it’s a key vehicle for FCA, along with the Wrangler, and a great deal of thought has gone into making it better without losing the things current buyers like. Ram has been factory-constrained for some time; with new capacity coming on line soon, the new design will be able to soar, if customers buy into it.

    [​IMG]

    With a long-awaited next-generation Wrangler debuting within weeks and the Ram 1500 following, it’s an exciting time to follow the former Chrysler Corporation.

    A Jeep Wagoneer outfitted for Border Patrol or Police use could be the intent.

    Exactly what i was thinking. Where I live (North Dakota) most city and county xops drive surburbans with the occasional Charger or Taurus. Highway patrol is all Chargers. Would be nice to see these surburbans get replaced with wagoneers.

    Now that the cat's out of the bag as far as the new Ram screens go (well, perhaps part way out), the screen size is 12".

    Yes, air suspension. As you can see it in the all the way down position.



    Current DS Rams have the system as an option... the system on DT will be quicker to raise and lower.

    You will see this system next on WS and followed up by the next generation Grand Cherokee (WL) Durango (WE) and the next generation Charger and Challenger in certain trim levels.

    DT will show us a lot of the technology that will show up in WS since it will be based on the same chassis. Air suspension, 360* cameras, infotainment and other things will be shared.

    Wow. Does anyone else in the industry have 12 inch screens?

    I wonder if they'll be powered by Nvidia Tegra chips...

    We're all quietly wondering if this 12" screen is simply a larger Uconnect, or if there is some Tesla-esque functions to it. Aside from being beautiful and larger, will the 12" function any differently from the 8.4"?

    I wonder if that Waymo partnership might finally yield something. Or maybe that screen can run Chrome?
